Epson has introduced the VS410 and VS350W — the newest versions of its high-brightness projector series for small businesses.

The VS410 (US$899) offers 4,000 lumens of color and white light output with XGA resolution, and the VS350W ($949) delivers 3,500 lumens color and white light output with WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution for users looking to leverage widescreen notebooks and high-definition content, says Jason Meyer, product manager, Epson America.

He adds that the VS410 and VS350W offer easy-to-use connectivity and control features, including USB Plug ‘n Play for instantly projecting video and audio from a Mac or PC via a USB connection, as well as direct power on and off for wall switch power control and instant on/off that instantly powers the projector on and off with no cool down time. In addition, the A/V mute slide turns off the sound and images to create a quick pause in the presentation, conserving lamp life and energy, and helping to save costs.

The Epson VS410 and VS350W provide presenters with features such as built-in 5W speakers and Epson’s exclusive E-TORL lamp technology which enables the lamp life to last up to 4,000 hours in economy mode. The VS410 and VS350W also come equipped with the latest 3LCD, 3-chip technology.

The Epson VS410 and VS350W will be available in September through national resellers, mail order and distribution. Both models come with a standard one-year limited warranty that includes two elite technical support services — Epson PrivateLine phone support with direct access to an expedited support telephone line via a phone card included with the product, and a Road Service projector replacement program that includes projector exchange in two business days.
